Environmental information
All unnecessary packaging has been omitted. We
have tried to make the packaging easy to
separate into three materials: cardboard (box),
polystyrene foam (buffer) and polyethylene (bags,
protective foam sheet).
Your system consists of materials which can be
recycled and reused if disassembled by a
specialised company. Please observe the local
regulations regarding the disposal of packaging
materials, exhausted batteries and old
equipment.
Safety information
● Before operating the system, check that the
operating voltage indicated on the typeplate (or
the voltage indication beside the voltage
selector) of your system is identical with the
voltage of your local power supply. If not, please
consult your dealer.
● Where the MAINS plug or an appliance coupler
is used as the disconnet device, the disconnect
device shall remain readily operable.
● Place the system on a flat, hard and stable
surface.
● The apparatus shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
● Install the unit near the AC outlet and where the
AC power plug can be easily reached.
● Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent internal heat build-up in
your system. Allow at least 10 cm (4 inches)
clearance from the rear and the top of the unit
and 5 cm (2 inches) from each side.
● The ventilation should not be impeded by
covering the ventilation openings with items,
such as newspapers, table-cloths, cur tains, etc.
● Do not expose the system, batteries or discs to
excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat sources
caused by heating equipment or direct sunlight.
● No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles,
should be placed on the apparatus.
● No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall
be placed on the apparatus.

● If the system is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lens of the disc
unit inside the system. Should this occur, the CD
player would not operate normally. Leave the
power on for about one hour with no disc in the
system until normal playback is possible.
● The mechanical parts of the set contain selflubricating bearings and must not be oiled or
lubricated.
● Batteries (battery pack or batteries installed)
shall not be exposed to excessive heat such as
sunshine, fire or the like.
● When the system is switched to Standby
mode, it is still consuming some power.
To disconnect the system from the
power supply completely, remove the AC
power plug from the wall socket.
English
General Information
Hearing Safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
● Using headphones at a high volume can impair
your hearing. This product can produce sounds
in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for
a normal person, even for exposure less than a
minute. The higher decibel ranges are offered
for those that may have already experienced
some hearing loss.
● Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing
"comfort level" adapts to higher volumes of
sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds
"normal" can actually be loud and harmful to
your hearing. To guard against this, set your
volume to a safe level before your hearing
adapts and leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
● Set your volume control at a low setting.
Maintenance
● Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distor tion.
● When a disc becomes dirty,
clean it with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center
out, in a straight line.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
● Do not expose the player,
batteries or discs to humidity,
rain, sand or excessive heat
(caused by heating equipment or direct sunlight).
Always keep the disc tray closed to avoid dust
on the lens.
● Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner,
commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for colour discs.
● The lens may cloud over when the player is
suddenly moved from cold to warm
surroundings, making it impossible to play a disc.
Leave the player in the warm environment until
the moisture evaporates.
● Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally
"safe" levels, can also cause hearing loss.
● Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and
take appropriate breaks.
Be sure to observe the following
guidelines when using your headphones.
● Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable
periods of time.
● Be careful not to adjust the volume as your
hearing adapts.
● Do not turn up the volume so high that you
can't hear what's around you.
● You should use caution or temporarily
discontinue use in potentially hazardous
situations.
● Do not use headphones while operating a
motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many
areas.

Glossary
English
Analog: Sound that has not been turned into
numbers. Analog sound varies, while digital sound
has specific numerical values. These jacks send
audio through two channels, the left and right.
Aspect ratio: The ratio of vertical and
horizontal sizes of a displayed image. The
horizontal vs. vertical ratio of conventional TVs. is
4:3, and that of wide-screens is 16:9.
AUDIO OUT Jacks: Jacks on the back of the
DVD System that send audio to another system
(TV set, Stereo, etc.).
Bit Rate: The amount of data used to hold a
given length of music; measured in kilobits per
second, or kbps. Or, the speed at which you
record. Generally, the higher the bit rate the
better the sound quality. However, higher bit
rates use more space on a Disc.
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music
piece on a DVD that are smaller than titles. A
title is composed of several chapters. Each
chapter is assigned a chapter number enabling
you to locate the chapter you want.
Component Video Out Jacks: Jacks on the
back of the DVD System that send high-quality
video to a TV set that has Component Video In
jacks (R/G/B, Y/Pb/Pr, etc.).
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for the
selection of images, sound, subtitles, multi-angles,
etc recorded on a DVD.
Digital: Sound that has been converted into
numerical values. Digital sound is available when
you use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT COAXIAL
or OPTICAL jacks. These jacks send audio
through multiple channels, instead of just two
channels as analog does.
Dolby Digital: A surround sound system
developed by Dolby Laboratories containing up
to six channels of digital audio (front left and
right, surround left and right and center).
JPEG: A still-picture data compression system
proposed by the Joint Photographic Expert
Group, which features small decrease in image
quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
MP3: A file format with a sound data
compression system, “MPE” is the abbreviation of
Motion Picture Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1)
Audio Layer 3. Through the MP3 format, one
CD-R or CD-RW can contain about 10 times as
much data volume as a regular CD can.
Multichannel: DVD is specified to have all
sound tracks constitute one sound field.
Multichannel refers to a structure of sound
tracks having three or more channels.
Parental control: A function of the DVD to
limit playback of the disc by the age of the users
according to the limitation level in each country.
The limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is
activated, playback will be prohibited if the
software’s level is higher than the user-set level.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation): A system
for converting analog sound signal to digital
signal for later processing without data
compression.
Playback control (PBC): Refers to the signal
recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for
reproduction control. By using screen menus
recorded on a Video CD or SVCD that supports
PBC, you can enjoy interactive-type software as
well as software having a search function.
Progressive Scan (P-Scan): It displays all the
horizontal lines of a picture at one time, as a
signal frame. This system can convert interlaced
video from DVD into progressive format for
connection to a progressive display. It
dramatically increases the vertical resolution. A
progressive scan TV set is needed to receive
progressive scan output from the system.
Region code: A system allowing discs to be
played only in preset regions. This unit will only
play discs that have compatible region codes.You
can find the region code of your unit from the
product label. Some discs are compatible with
more than one region (or ALL regions).
S-Video: Produces a clear picture by sending
separate signals for luminance and the color. You
can use S-Video only if your TV set has S-Video
In jack.
Sampling Frequency: Frequency of data
sampling when analog data is converted to
digital data. Sampling frequency numerically
represents how many times the original analog
signal is sampled per second.
Surround: A system for users to create
realistic three-dimensional sound fields full of
realism by arranging multiple speakers around
the listener.
Title: The longest section of a picture or music
feature on DVD, music, etc., in video software, or
the entire album in audio software. Each title is
assigned a title number enabling you to locate
the title you want.
VIDEO OUT jack: Jack on the back of the
DVD System that sends video to TV.
